Argument Against the Good-Looking Corpse is exactly what’s got your Momma’s finger wagging: a good-timing lost soul, trying hard to grow up, but mostly paving that proverbial road for you, precious child. You!
Morgan Wooten is a shape-shifting roughneck/decathlete/civil engineer/mule (so to speak) in search of what feels good and right in a ten-story road trip that stretches from ice-cold Oslo to the Philippines Sea, from Saint John the Baptist Parish to the sands of Sonora, with lots and lots of south Texas, west Texas, rural Texas and urban Texas in between. Not to mention heaping helpings of sex, death and resurrection.
So drop on in and sit a spell. Morgan’s got some tales to tell.

"Since taking up residence in this elbow of Eden, this former pig farm/meth lab on the banks of Coleto Creek, I've been reading a lot of the Big Yawp. And it's pretty clear, upon closer inspection, that my life's been clipped. 
But only temporarily. And only in the most benevolent way.
